“A bit overpriced...but well worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The selection of seafood items are pretty good for a buffet. We got here around 7pm and was told they cannot put us in the waiting list until 7:30 pm. I guess that's when open seating starts. There was a lot of people waiting and is highly recommended that you make reservations specially if you have more than 5 in your party.

The crab legs were moist and seemed fresher compared to other seafood buffets out in the area. The service we received was excellent (as expected with Disney) and the atmosphere was great.

We spent approx $170 for four (not including tip). It was a little over our budget but was well worth it.

“Thursday Night Seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We did Thursday night as this is the fried clam special night. Each night is a special fried option. Every night is crab legs.
The seating in this place is not great it is choppy and if you are there you can see what we mean. I hate my back to the hallway along the pool and it is LOUD as groups of tourists pass behind your head. There were a few tables by the buffet but I got Butt Bumped there was the buffet line started. I do not like being eye level with a bootie while I eat.
Facing the buffet from the entrance: The buffett has 4 sides all of which are different and have NO FLOW....Front is salads and cold items, Left is Crab, mussels and carving station, back is childrens food and breads with some desserts and the right is crab, mussels and the fried item of the day. There is a seperate buffet of desserts when you walk in. This being said if you line up and cross the back which most people do you run smack into the other line with the fried food.
Price....not horrible for the seafood but not a keeper in our book. I would rather pay more and not feel like I am at Old Country Buffet with crab legs.

“Good Seafood experience Walt Disney World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Very good seafood buffet with excellent fresh food choices. Although we have experience better seafood buffets, this does rate as one of the better ones. Some may not like the price but it does not take long to eat the cost of the meal in clams and crab legs alone not to mention the prime rib.

“Great Meals!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We've enjoyed both the character breakfast and the seafood buffet-equally great experiences. The breakfast offers the usual kid- friendly Mickey fare, with additional yummy options not found at other breakfast locations. The seafood dinner was exceptional for a buffet, especially the prime rib & of course, the king crab legs steamed just right. My only issue is that they only offered shrimp one way (chilled marinated.) Try the little neck clams they're soooooo good, not overdone. We will choose this as a meal on our next trip.
